In the planning and development of the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS), we will continue to engage with a large range of stakeholders, including young people and their representative organisations such as Girlguiding UK, to ensure everyone has their say. We have committed to introduce a DRS by 20223 using powers in the forthcoming Environment Bill. There will be an opportunity to engage during the relevant consultation.
